About the course
Mechatronics gives you the opportunity to become a professional Engineer with sound analytical proficiency in embedded systems, digital electronics, dynamics and control, complemented by the 3D-design and management skills necessary to work in modern industry.
Reasons to study Mechatronics at DMU:
The course addresses theoretical and practical aspects of digital electronics, embedded systems, programming and dynamic systems, giving you the mathematical knowledge to analyse these using manual calculations and computer aided methods
You will use industry standard software such as ProEngineer, MatLab, OrCAD and Algor FEA Analysis and have access to computer and experimental laboratory facilities
The course is accepted by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) for membership at Incorporated Engineer Level.
Mechatronics is the generally accepted term for the integration of mechanical, electronic and computing sub-systems to realise a complete system, which may be a product, machine or process. Any industry where safety is critical will have mechatronic controls to give a level of automatic control.
Devices in modern homes, such as ovens, washing machines, DVD recorders, CD players, digital cameras, mobile phones and security systems, are all controlled by microprocessors. Industrial equipment contains many more systems which are vital for the safe control of processing equipment in industries, such as food, medical, pharmaceutical, chemical and oil sectors.
